Any way to use a 3rd party HDD as a Sony HDD for SOCOM 2?
Any way to use a 3rd party HDD as a Sony HDD for SOCOM 2? –
I want to be able to download the new maps for SOCOM 2 when they come out, and I refuse to buy an official Sony HDD/FF combo pack. I do not want that game. Can the SOCOM 2 disc image be patched somehow, or is it just not possible in any way?
As of right now, I do not think it is possible. Its being looked into though.
ya,,, i've been do'n that for a loong time now... all u hafta do is patch the game for dnas and the atrx file? ^_^
same goes for resident evil outbreak!!! woot!!!!
sadly.. ii've just read that socom2 realeased a patched... that'll block u from the server wen the id is alrdy be'n used on the server >_<
go look up the tutorial somehwere on the web :-p
if ya can't find any.. i guess i can look in my pc harddrive :-p it has alot of tutorials ^_^ i saved..heh
DMS3 + ATAD Auto patching = working 3rd party HDD. And to get the maps, just backup your original and then DNAS patch it, and it will work as if you had the Official Sony HDD. If you don't have a DMS3, then you could try giving the old ATAD a patching. Don't know how that will fair though.
If you don't have a DMS3 chip all you have to do is patch the ATAD.IRX file after creating an image of the game disc. I am pretty certain this patch is floating around and it works just fine. This will let your HD be recognized by the game (but by this game only, you have to patch every game you want to use with a different patch if you can't do it manually). I don't know anything about DNAS patching but since you have an original game disc you don't have to worry about your disc ID being blocked on the server like Allenylc stated.
http://home.t-online.de/home/5200714...G_HDD_PATCHES/ here are the ppf patchs. then you also need the ppf patcher 3 (i think). ofcourse you will have to reburn the dvd with the dnas patch. also i did it and it works but i have to used the burn disk or the orginal will say that the hdd is not configured right.
ive seen patches for winning eleven 7 flying around, would they work for winning eleven 8? or do u think i can patch winning eleven 7, expand the iso, take out the atard.irx and inject it into winning eleven 8??
anyone ever tried that?
I don't think it would work as PPFs modify an image at a specific hex address. Unless 7 and 8 had the atad.irx file at the exact same value, it won't work.
Your method would probably work though, I think.
1.open atad.irx with hex workshop
2.find hex "D0FF BD27 0021 0400 FFFF 8430" u will saw 6 instances of "D0FF BD27 0021 0400 FFFF 8430?
3.go to no.6 "D0FF BD27 0021 0400 FFFF 8430" replace it WITH "2110 0000 0800 E003 0000 0000" done
4.use apache2 or other tools open ur .iso file ,and replace atad.irx file then burn it
Sweet! Lots of good info here! I am going to try the ppf patch this evening. I will let you all know how it goes. I do in fact have the original SOCOM 2 pressed game, and my console is a v4 with a Magic 3 with a toggle switch to turn it off for online play.
